Sotek Stators & Rotors for Wind Turbine Installations
A wind turbine is used to harvest energy from the wind. The wind's kinetic energy turns the blades of the turbine. The turbine blades spin a shaft which turns the generator and converts wind into electricity. Wind turbines can be thought of like a household fan in reverse. Instead of consuming energy to power an electric motor shaft attached to fan blades which move air to keep us cool, wind turns the turbine blades which turns the rotor portion of the generator, creating energy for use elsewhere in powering our homes, charging electric vehicles, smartphones, lighting, warming and cooling our homes and offices.
A turbine's generator is housed in the nacelle, which is the aerodynamically shaped housing, perpendicular to the blades of the turbine. In addition to the generator, the nacelle contains a variety of components depending on the style of the turbine, high-speed shaft, low-speed shaft, wind vane, wind vane controller, gearbox, pitch system, braking, etc. Sotek is the expert in OEM manufacturing Wind Turbine stators and rotors, the main components of the generator. If you need a skilled, experienced, efficient supplier of quality electrical steel laminations to build your wind power stators and rotors, and streamline your Wind Power Generation projects, Sotek is your answer.
Energy production is growing more and more green. Wind power projects are increasing rapidly. The price per kilowatt of electricity is decreasing. In this ever-changing, high-tech world, we look for ways not only reduce cost but reduce our carbon footprint as well.
